West Online Store scam?A few weeks ago I get an email from West Online Store ( http://www.westonlinestore.com/ ) telling me that I have been hired for a Online Store Clerk position where I can work at home and get paid up to 2500 a month. I first thought, this is too good to be true, and in my experience, it usually is.

Now they didn't ask me much personal information, but did send me an agreement (I read through it and it's just basic company policy) and wanted me to sign, date, and place my address on the form. I thought it was harmless at first since they didn't want my social security number or birthday or anything like that. Just my signature and address.

But a few weeks have gone by and I know now for sures that they're a scam. There obviously isn't an "Online Store Clerk" position. I tried to call the number they provided me 888-277-7258, and it's just busy all the time and can't get through. I got a call 3 weeks ago by someone and he said "yeah, all you gotta do is check the package we send you, and make sure everything is in place, and ship the package out in a pre-paid package, and you will make 2500 a month". After that call, and that conversation, he was never heard from again. he said his name was John Mitchell of West Online Store.

Its been 3 weeks. And I know now they're not for reals. But my question is, can they do massive identity theft damage to me with just my physical address and my signature? My guess is yes, or else they wouldn't have gone through the trouble with emailing me and calling me. If they can, what can I do to report this to the police? Or who should I call or notify about this situation? Any help would be great, thanks!
